What an absolute waste of a neat concept. This is a musical, which fits rather nicely with the dark, supernatural setting. Unfortunately, the actual story is the worst kind of harem schlock, with a vapid, uninteresting main character and potential suitors that range from vaguely unlikable to horribly creepy. None of them even appear to be interested in Ritsuka, said main character, but only follow her because she may or may not possess some important knowledge involving a magic book.

The plot goes absolutely nowhere, with each episode involving somebody trying to woo Ritsuka and her blindly falling into whatever trap they set, even after multiple read more

Dance with Devils caught me by surprise. I typically prefer stories with characters being the main focus of the show, how they develop and how they deal with the problems presented to them. Although, I've always had a soft spot for reverse harems ever since I watched Amnesia. As I picked up this show, I expected it to be just like any other reverse harem where 4 or 5 men fall in love with the same girl who so happen to all know each other. Dance with Devils isn't as simple as that. There is a reason why everyone is 'after her' and there is read more

The reverse harem genre is not one I particularly dislike. When decently executed and well developed, we have a show that can leap bounds with its potential. I had this same hope with the harem genre. Big surprise, I lost my mind after the hundred thousand and eleventh panty shot and gave up on it entirely. But by then, I still had high hopes that the reverse harem genre could possibly be a more fruitful experience than actual harems. I hadn't seen many shows in the genre but from the good things I've heard, I stood firm on my ground, ready to explore!

That was until read more

Dance with Devils is a great example of a "reverse harem" done right. I will admit that going into Dance with Devils it doesn't appear to be much different than the average, but this was easily the biggest surprise of the season! No it's not perfect by any means, but if you're looking for something unique in the genre, then you've come to the right place!

~Story: 7/10~
The story follows a girl named Ritsuka and her run in with the members of her school's student council, who aren't exactly who they seem to be on the surface... Ok let's be honest given the name and synopsis read more

I really love this anime, since I'm someone who likes musicals, reverse harems, and... hot anime guys.

Story: 9
An ordinary girl's life changed when she found out that this mysterious "grimoire" resided in her. Her mom was kidnapped by a vampire. These demons offer help to find her mom, but basically harasses her for 7 episodes. But, all in all, it's pretty decent.

Art & Character: 10
Beautiful. The characters are basically a work of art. Even now, I still find it difficult to choose JUST one guy. The character designs suit the personalities of the characters very well. They are all unique and very distinct. The character read more

(This review has been adapted from my blog/reddit thread. Spoilers ahead!)

Dance with Devils describes itself pretty well. There are devils and there is dancing. Less dancing than devils but still.

I cannot speak much about devils. (I have already talked at length about the Divine Comedy.) As for dancing, I also cannot speak much. There is one detail about dancing, however, that will always stick with me: my father’s “signature move.”

He told me that, if you cannot dance, or if you want to but want to avoid embarrassment, you simply do the “cabbage patch.” It is rather simple, really. Make fists out of your hands. Put read more

If you have a huge thing for Disney movies and sing alongs this is the anime for you! I've never been one for sing alongs but this anime really put me in the mood to sign with the main character.

I went into this anime with no expectations. I saw that it had to do with vampires and I was like "Ok!" Thats not at all what this anime is about.

I never thought that a Disney like anime with singing vampires would be such a turn on to my mind but its kind of odd what this has done for me. I can say read more

…Why do I even trust Rejet anymore?

That is enough to express myself, right? You guys don’t need any more clarification, right? Right?!…

….No? You do?

Well…FINE! Let me put on my reviewer-glasses and give this a try.

Story - 3

I’ll be serious and straightforward here; I can’t generally really find anything redeemable in Dance with Devils, at least when it comes to the plot, mostly because it tends to suffer from the same problems that Diabolik Lovers had. And by that I do not mean the guys treating the heroine like a Masochistic-Blood-Pack-On-Two-Legs, not entirely at least, but it’s all the plot points put together that just read more

Dance with Devils...where do I even begin? I'll try to keep this as short as I can.

First of all, before I even watched the series, NO WHERE in any synopsis or description did it say that this was a musical and the songs were absolutely dreadful and cringe worthy. The story, without the terrible display of reverse harem, had potential but the first half of the series focused on devoting full episodes to develop the characters of the love interests. This was executed so poorly and it was embarrassing to watch. EVERY episode about the love interests were the same structure, but read more

Dance with Devils in a word: Ridiculous

The whole time, I was laughing so hard at how random and ridiculous it was. Imma be blunt right off the bat, it was not a good anime, but I had a lot of fun watching it with my friend because we made fun of it the whole time.

It starts off pretty normal and then all of a sudden the main girl starts singing on her way to school and I'm like "Lol, wut." Then she gets called to the 3rd library (2spooky4me) where all the hawt student council demon guys are lurking about in their free time read more

Just when I thought that I couldn't find another reverse harem that I liked, a recommendation popped up on my YouTube account. "Dance with Devils episode 1". I had heard things about this show being bad so I was hesitant when clicking it. After watching the first episode I needed to continue watching more because all I could think was "Whats going to happen next?". As you can tell by my 10/10 rating, this show was AMAZING in my opinion. However, this anime has just a little higher rating than my favorite reverse harem, Amnesia. read more

I can't tell how much cheated I feel.
Throughout the whole anime the main character has been nothing more than a silly that anyone could deceive, and she was like nothing matters really.
Also, Lindo diserved so much more at the end. To me, he was the best character. I can't say much more, but except Lindo, the music parts (I laughed a lot in these parts, and enjoy them) and the art... This is not much worth your time. AT ALL.
I recon that it has its moments, but I think there are better animes out there. And romances. I am still wondering why Rem read more

Unlike a lot of people, I actually liked Dance with Devils. The story was like any other reverse harem anime that's based off a game. The main girl goes to high school, she meets boys, boys fall in love with her because she's "special" and she either chooses a boy or goes for the true harem ending. But with Dance with Devils I liked how they had the songs were not very random and seem appropriate when played. It was also really fun to just watch this because I kept shouting random things and waving my metal bookmark around. I may have gotten some weird read more

I just want to be honest and I think our opinion will vary on our taste so yeah.

Pros: I like the Animation especially it is musical, I'm a fan of Disney and it's rare for an anime to be musical so I like that fact. The plot is quite common but still catchy if you like romance and devil or vampire stuff. OST is just fine.
Dress and clothing are expected to be over-designed as it is a vampire romance stuff. I just hope they made it a little simple.
The appearance of the MC and the heroine is nice, I like how simple she looks but read more

story: 5

The story itself wasn't the worst part of the anime. It wasn't the most original either but it was tolerable. What annoyed me the most was the music in the most ridiculous time, and the choice of the songs was awful. You could be watching the most serious, intense battle( not like there was any-but just saying) and they decide to show their feelings by songs? Really?

But in the end I got confused! I wonder what was the purpose of this whole anime is. Its not rom -com, its not scary, it doesn't have deep, awesome plot. Its not slice of life. what read more

This anime for me was hypnotic. All the time I was watching it I was thinking, these characters are all just broody, fallen hot boys that have little development (but they are all different to one another), yet they are hot and I need to keep on watching this anime.
The lines of dialogue weren't the best, but I wanted to marry the voices!
The story is a classic damsel in distress sort of thing but very fleshed out for something that just wanted people falling for hot lads really.
The art was very nice, not the best but good enough to make all the lads in this read more

This anime had some really good things going for it. Overall i found it very enjoyable, excluding the weirdly out of place songs that were thrown into the anime. The story was definitely nothing special, seen it a few times now. But surprisingly it was well enough done that I wanted, and did, keep watching. This was kind of like a not quite as good version of vampire night. The art was decent along with the music. I honestly don't have a good explanation why i found this anime as enjoyable as i did, but thats it, it was simply entertaining to watch. The biggest read more

The story had potential but it's just another pathetic otome game turned anime. Plus points for episode 5 with the shitty Cantonese, however since the translators (and I mean very few people can understand Cantonese properly these days) didn't translate that part, it was a waste. But good pronunciation, since it IS FROM AN ANIME. Props to the Seiyuus. Back to the point, who the hell puts a musical element? LIKE full blown american musical broadway style sort of thing into the anime? It was the most interesting add on, but also the cringiest thing I've ever heard. There was potential and I didn't find read more

It's no masterpiece,but it's no where near as bad as some of the "objective reviewers/critic"would make it out to be.

One good quality for the anime is it's musical concept.Every character has a musical montage to flesh them out,it is a pretty cool idea honestly.

Sadly there is not much else to say about this.

The plot is about finding a special power ,vampires and devils a trying to find it.And the girl is the answer.

The main heroine is a self insert,a girl version of a typical harem lead.She always goes into danger no matter what,just out of curiosity.

Sure the devils in this series have cool powers,but when read more

Dance with Devils really surprised me in a positive way. First of all I need to say that Im no big Harem fan, because in my opinion its always the same: weak or no story, weak and unrelatable main character.. I had a very bad opinion of Harems after watching Amnesia etc.. But anyways I wanted to give DwD a chance since a friend of mine requested it
Forget all the bad things about Harems, Dance with Devils is totally different! You have a great mainstory and great characters. The main character, teenage girl Ritsuka, has a strong personality and stays true to herself until the read more
